This is actually something that requires it to be implemented within the Firmware source code itself.

I hope that I had explained this okay via text...

I do wish you the best of luck!

Phuck I already regret getting this device, because I only knew about the lack of VoLTE after purchasing this phone. I swear that not a single review that I read mentioned it. I never expected Lenovo scums to do something like this. Thanks anyway for crushing my hope and giving some closure lol, I appreciate the reply.

I really do understand your frustration...

I don't understand why the device has the capability for VoLTE but, wasn't provided with the ability for it within the Firmware.

It's kinda like getting a device that has the capability for ARM64/64-bit but, was never provided the ability for it because the Firmware was ARM/32-bit.

Sorry for the bad news...

Actually, there should be a "4G+" icon, which already shows LTE Advanced is not enabled.

Is it possible to re-enable VoLTE on stock ROM with root access, by editing any system file, or the only way to get VoLTE support back is flashing a custom ROM that has this feature implemented? Thanks in advance.

@Ibuprophen

Maybe I´m totally wrong but I think that is not enough that device supports a specific feature when coming to specific services that finally relies on the carrier side.

I think that some brands like and not only Motorola remove this feature (and others) due to some request from the carrier and then they exclude some models from it´s own support list (I don´t guess why).

Contact with the carrier and ask for more info about your model and this issue, maybe they shed some light on this. I don´t think there is a reason why Lenovo would remove this option by itself.

If it is possible to enable VoLTE on the device, it would probably require a new kernel with VoLTE support added to the kernel. Adding this feature goes deeper than just the software layer, I think.

I accessed the Testing menu through the number *#*#4636#*#*, and on "Phone information" submenu, there's a toggle called "VoLTE provisioned", and it was turned on. Does this confirms my phone has 4G+ support on software level, but the device is blacklisted by the carrier?

If the device was previously activated on a monthly plan and the bill was not paid, then, yes, the device has been blacklisted and there is legally nothing you can do to activate the device until the bill has been paid and the carrier removes the device from blacklisting.

There is a difference between 4G LTE capability and VoLTE, these two things are not the same thing.

4G LTE capability is only the ability to use 4G data network.

VoLTE = voice over LTE.

Which of these features are you asking about?

The capability resides first of all in the hardware so no problem in that cause SD630 supports it, but the second scale is that the software provided by the manufacturer in this case Lenovo/Motorola have it enabled, at this point my theory is that they disable it or enable it depending on some regional/country/carrier politics.

At this point enable it is not hard at all for the manufacturer, it´s enough with an update and include it as said @Droidriven in a new kernel but I think that they are subject of what want finally a carrier.

Following this theory means that if device is a carrier branded that was provided directly by Lenovo to the carrier and this feature was blocked by software BUT if this device you bought it free of carrier out of the box in any cell store/shop then just the carrier that you are using didn´t enable this feature for this specific model (yet now but maybe in a near future) but it did it for other models.

To prove this last you could try with other chip/sim from other provider in an area that admits VoLTE.

I think that you are wording blacklisted wrongly, it´s not that your device is blacklisted to avoid this specific feature to working only on your device but all the Motorola G6+ under this carrier support.

My device was bought in a retailer, meaning it has an unbranded firmware. I think the firmware does support 4G+, as there's a "VoLTE provisioned" toggle, I'm more inclined to believe 4G+ on the Moto G6 Plus was disabled by the carrier. I'll try to spare a SIM card from another carrier to confirm.
